So I am intimidated to write something without posting pictures (even though I have some to post around here somewhere) but here I am posting. Late at night in a hotel room. I managed to get free internet because we found a cockroach in our bathroon (FOUR STAR HOTEL MY FOOT!) and I complained about it. Boo. Yeah.

So basically Micah and I have been gallivanting about the country for interviews. Interviews as in residency. Blah blah doctor stuff blah blah Med school blah blah.

Traveling is fun. It can be wearisome at times. So far we have been to Washington, Oregon, LA (Micah only) New York, San Diego, and now San Francisco. The plane rides have been aplenty. We have eaten out far too much. I think Micah is growing tired of the interviewing process. He is literally zonked out, exhausted, in bed beside me.

But we will press on. There is still Sacramento and Washington (even though we already went to Washington, we visited family and Micah drove to Portland from there). And then finally back to Chicago. I miss that ole town. It has become another home to me.

Where is home anyways? It is hard to determine where we will spend the next 4 years. I feel stretched out, having lived in several states in the US and even abroad. I am slow making new friends. I am also slow at waking up in the morning. That is irrelevant, for irrelevancy’s sake.

I realize I have a lot to complain about living the life of a doctor spouse, if I tried really hard. But I can’t being myself to do it. I don’t know why. Life is hard. Yeah, sure. But it’s so awesome. We freaking went to New York. We totally messed with a guy in China town to get 2 hats for 12 bucks. We got to see the Statue of Libery and the Golden Gate Bridge. I saw West Side Story on Broadway.

There is still much to write, but this will have to do. I will fill you in on all the fun details. Including my own bit of work as a model in San Diego. Oh, the intrigue.

Thanks for tuning in. I’ll shut up now.

Sweeet. I am thinking you brought that roach along in a jar to be released for your own benefit. RAD.
You guys are perdy lucky. Enjoy seeing most of AMERICA.

Fun fun fun.

What a rough life. Never having to make your bed. Never having to cook. Live it up for me.

Betsy and Micah! Your blog totally rocks those of all my siblings, mostly because of the snakes. Anyways, I'm curious to know what kind of medicine Micah is going into.

I don't know if you remember me, Betsy, or even if Micah does. He better.

Anyway, I'm here to let you know that I've been checking in on your blog every once in a while and even though none of these places are all that close to Los Angeles, where we currently are (UCLA), I would be thrilled if you picked California. Then we could be friends...again?

p.s. congratulations
